INDUSTRY LEADERS: Nominations are now being accepted for the 2019 Young Cattlemen’s Conference. Pictured is the 2018 class.

Nominations open for 2019 Young Cattlemen’s Conference

The deadline for nominations is July 5.

The Ohio Young Cattlemen’s Conference (YCC) and Tour will be held Aug. 8-10, in Columbus and the  central Ohio area. The Ohio Cattlemen’s Foundation (OCF) and Ohio Cattlemen’s Association (OCA) coordinate the Ohio YCC Tour.

Every summer, young cattle producers meet in Central Ohio for a three-day event. YCC features numerous engaging educational opportunities designed to inform both beef industry leaders and cattle producers alike. The event offers industry insight and enhanced networking for attendees to take home and use, to keep their own operations progressive and profitable.

Participants are challenged to think outside the box as they practice public relations skills and learn beneficial ways to present their operations and the beef industry to consumers. They will have the chance to visit the Ohio Statehouse and discuss current issues with elected officials, as well as learn more about their product through participation in a mini Beef 509 at Ohio State University’s Department of Animal Sciences.

To top it all off, attendees will be able to take a behind-the-scenes tour of OSU’s football practice facility and enjoy opportunities to network with other industry leaders.

Education for potential leaders

YCC is open to any OCA member over the age of 20 who possesses great leadership potential and is active in their community. Counties are encouraged to nominate participants for YCC, but individuals may also nominate themselves. Couples are also encouraged to attend. The cost is $150 per participant or $250 per couple, and nomination forms and payment must be submitted to OCF by July 5.

All meals and a two-night hotel stay will be covered by the YCC program sponsors: Farm Credit Mid-America, Ohio Beef Council, Ohio Corn & Wheat Growers Association and the Rick Malir and Bonnie Coley-Malir Beef Leadership Fund.

Nominate someone online at or contact Kagney Collins at the OCA office at 614-873-6736 or
